We're kicking off American Craft Chocolate Week with a special hands-on class! Anne Bouley, of Michigan's Artisanne Chocolatier, will show you how to temper chocolate and make ganache fillings. She’ll share her coloring techniques and bring along her molds so you can make your own box of beautiful bonbons to take home!
